I have so many wonderful memories of living next to Ralph, Mercy and the Francos. Ralph was indeed a special man. So very kind, so soft spoken , gentle and spiritual. He and Mercy were my moms dear friends and always looked after her. It was a wonder neighborhood. Fond memories of the Francos will live in my heart forever.
